I would sign Beverly, they could get him relatively cheap, sign him and Butler and they're set

Funny how these prices are influenced by social media. Marc Stein (NY Times) tweets Kemba next on Laker radar & market treats it like gold.

If Lakers get Brogdan, that's a huge pickup.

Bucks will have tough time keeping him. May prioritize Middleton + Lopez.

Who does LBJ want? Really all that matters.

The salary cap is a joke in the NBA. It seems like there is an exemption for everything.

GameBred thinks Kelsey Plum could start at point guard for the Lakers and LeBron would still carry the team to the title.

Yet Kelsey is just a piece on the Las Vegas Aces team.

And not irreplaceable.

Neither #1 pick out of ComptrBob's alma mater in 2017 made great waves.

Why does LA need 3 superstars to win when Toronto just won a title with 1?

How many all-stars did Jordan play with? The answer is one. Pippin was the only teammate who made a all star team. Lebron has had 6-7 already.

Great point, FW.

All-Star accolades are overrated.

You want players who star in their roles.

Last I checked, the NBA game features only one basketball.

And if LBJ is the player he is made out to be, he should be able to raise the level of the role players they need to fill out the roster. Look at the Rockets situation now - 2 stars who couldn’t play together, now Paul wants out.

Just going by the Lebron James strategy. LBJ,Wade, Bosh in Miami, LBJ,Irving,Love in Cleveland. Then he fills in with role players. So, I think they are one major piece short.

You guys make a good point on Kawhi and Toronto but, wow - they caught GS with major injury issues.

There was a point I considered Rondo an All Star. Right now, where do you put the Lakers on a Power Ranking? Top 15, Top 10, Top 5???

Kelsey Plum is very good from the 2 games i saw, high IQ player. What does Kelsey and Tucker Carlson have in common?

Did you see tonight's game, Birdie?

Kelsey Plum finished 0-for-8 from the field, including 0-for-4 from beyond the arc, for no points in 24 minutes of action.
